The title by which I hold the above land having
just been ully settled on its mertr In my ravor by tbe
Supreme Court in the case of Ruiz vs. Chambers after a
bitter contest of fifteen years daring which the most un-
tiring efforts hare been made to poison the minds and the
feelings of the courts and the people of the country against
me by insidious approaches and unblushing falsehoods
industriously propagated by an extensive and ruthless
combination the land Is n.w offered for sale at the low
price of TEN DOLLARS PER ACRE for the purpose of
raising the means to accomplish an important object. Only
one half the money will be required in hand and a rea-
sonable time wlllbe given for the payment of the balance.
The above tract or land comprehends the celebrated
Weedy Prairies and Is not surpassed by any land in the
world in fertilltr and productiveness. There can be but
little doubt that it will sell in a few years for forty or fifty
dollar per acre. But important considerations induce me
to oner it now at tbe very reduced terms advertised.

ed in the bill.
Mr. West made some remarks in favor

This man Mr. Speaker Samuel Swart-

low their confidence in us to be the very

There is another consideration connected
with this matter. Suppose that horeafter
another independent republic in any part of
the world should be struggling for existence
under circumstances similar to those of our
own revolution if Texas now sots an
example of ingratitude and a refusal
of justice to those who have aided her
in her sorest need I ask if that peo
ple can appeal with confidence to the
friends of freedom clscwhoro for such
assistance? What answer may they ex-
pect? Sir we arc acting here not for ourselves
alone but for every people that shall come

half of Texas called in tho city of New
York and who upon that occasion received
from the old hero that brief and cinnhatic
"Dear Sir You will not be removed.
This man is now a beggar without the
money to get a beef steak in the morning
and dependent for a precarious support for
himself and his wife on the scanty and ir-
regular contributions of their friends.
For one sir I am prepared to vote for
this bill and I do it with pride and with
pleasure. And I believe that as the assem-
bled representatives of a just an honorable
and a magnanimous people we ought to
pass u wunout a moment s hesitation and
without a dissenting voice.
Mr. "White thought this claim presented
a strong case in equity but it was not the
only equitable claim against Texas. He
could see no difference in position between
those who advanced their money and those
who contributed supplies or rendered per-
sonal service. "We required in those days
arms ammunition and men.
Mr. b.MiTir of Harris said I would not
trouble the House with any remarks upon
this subject were I not the chairman of the
committee on Public Debt which reported
the Senate's bill back to the House with a
favorable recommendation. And I propose
now only to state the facts which came in
evidence before that committee.
I disagree with the gentleman from Jack-
son (Mr. White) in one very important
particular and it is in this : that he can see
no difference whatever between the claims
ui uii.iz.uu3 in j.uxu3 ana tnose who came
here and threw in their lot with us in the
struggle and furnished their means and
those persons five in all in number resid-
ing in the United States who never did
come to Texas and had no interest direct
or indirect in the result except as patriotic
genuemeu wishing well to our cause and
willing to contribute their means to aid us
in our struggle when there was no prospect
With regard to the case of Swartwout a
statement has been made but I will briefly
recapitulate the circumstances. There was
was a vessel in New York about to sail for
Texas at the time we were struggling
againstine iuoxican government without a
dollar our millitary chest. That vessel
was 1 belled for debt and thus prevented
from coming to our relief. This gentleman
Mr. Samuel Swartwout at that moment
came forward and without voucher or re-
ceipt without seeing how he was to be paid
contributed out of his own pocket the
amount necessary to free that vessel from
detention ne was at that time a rich man.
And with regard to what the gentleman
from Galveston (Mr. Brown) has said I
wish not only to re-affirni but to state it
more fully. Mr. Swartwout's name was at
one time a word of reproach and became a
a syndnyine of public defalcation. But he
hag paid every dollar ho ever owed to the
federal government. Indeed he was at no
time a defaulter. And if we needed any
testimony to show that wc have it in the
fact that the stern old hero of the Hermit-
age never for one moment withdrew his
confidence from that man. From the
time Samuel Swartwout stood at his side at
New Orleans till he breathed his last at the
Hermitage Gen. Jackson never for a mo-
ment withdrew from him his countenance
or his confidence. And time which nroves
all things has shown that Mr. Swartwout
was at tho very time of the charges against
him the creditor and not the iebtor to the
United States treasury.
He is now as has been truly stated in a
condition of absolute penury without a
cuartillo to pay his ordinary expenses.
When our citizens wore prisoners and starv-
ing in Mexico Mr. Hargous advanced them
money for the purchase of clothing and
food without stopping to ask how he was
to be repaid. It was the same case with
Harry Hill. In the darkest hour of our
darkest days as the phrase is he contribu-
ted his thousands to the cause of Texas
without receiving the shadow of a voucher.
There U one other case and only one that
can possibly come within the same category
it is the case of Mr. St. John. These
are all of those cases. And in answer to
some of the remarks made by the gentle-
man from .Nacogdoches (Mr Pollock) to
tno eiicci mat tne passage ot this bill would
bo setting a bad precedent I will say that
this precedent cannot by possibility apply
m uuj inner Miii one single claim.
But Mr. Speaker if theso gentlemen
had done as others have done who have
contributed their means to the cause of
Toxaa in the revolution this- money would
be paid at tho preseut time at Washing
tou City with ten per cent interest. Had
they taken the precaution at tho titno to got
vouchers from some competent officer of
tho government and placed them in the
hands of the auditorial officers and all that
they would da uowrecciviDgthoir money.
But becauso they genorously contributed
muir means wnenour necessities wore pres-
Jung and did not wait till. thoy. could get
receipiea " u irom soio proper owcer ot
against the combined forces of despotism
Mr. Pollock I rccojniize in common
with other gentlemen who have addressed
the House the claims of the individuals to
whom they have alluded upon the gratitude
of the ppople of Texas. But in the conclu-
sion arrived at I must beg leave to differ.
I say that tho question presented to the
House is whether we will abandon the pol-
icy we havo heretofore adopted and throw
the door wide open for the presentation of
claims for interest in all cases where the
republic of Texas has not provided for the
payment of interest by law. That is the
question it does seem to me presented to
this Legislature to act upon at this time.
And I am informed that there are thousands
of dollars in this city now ready to be pre-
sentedwhich will be covemed and con
trolled by the very same principle which
lies at the foundation of this bill.
I am unwilling to vote for this as it now
stands. I would prefer rather than to set
such a precedent if there are peculiar cir-
cumstances attending this case such as to
show that it has extraordinary merit rather
than depart from a principle that in my
opinion should govern our action. I would
prefer to vote a donation to Mr. Swart-
wout. The question being on the passage of the
bill to a third reading tho aVpa -irul nnoa
were called for.
Mr. White when his name was called
said I vote against this bill for no other
reason than because I want a general law.
I vote no.

Influence op Grapes upon Teeth.
Li the Western Dental Convention held
at Detroit Dr. Perkins of New York stat-
ed that a pupil of his who had visited Da-
mascus and Mosel in the Mediteranian
found that in the latter place where grapes
were abundant and eaten freely by the peo-
ple they were not subject to premature decay
of teeth while in the former city where this
fruit was scarcely indulged in the people
had their teeth in no such healthful degree
of comparison. Dr. P. said there were
more dentists in the United States than in
Lietjt. Gov. Runnels. We enjoyed
the pleasure of a visit a few days since
from our distinguished friend whose name
heads this article. He has recently return-
ed from Austin where he has during the
lato extra session presided with marked
ability over the deliberations of the Senate.
Mr. Rnnnels has since the commencement
of his official term by his faithfulness and
impartiality retained the strong hold unon
tho confidence of the people which was so
signally ovidonced by his triumphant elec
tion in 1855. A firm andunflinchiug demo-
crat ho looks to a strict construction of
tho Constitution as tho only means of pro-
serving tho rights of tho South and would
bo among tho first to resent any outrage up-
on her institutions.
As a politician ho is mild but firm look-
ing only to tho right and always daring
to do it. Ho is in fact what is very scarce
uow-a-daya an honest politician and wo
predict for him. a long course of usefulness
to liU State and countrv.Jr7rn J
represent tho people of this Territory in that
body. TheTopeka Constitution recognized
by the House has been repudiateu by the
Senate. Various measures each in the
opinion of its respective advocates sugges-
tive of peace to Kansas have been alternately
proposed and rejected Men outside of the
Territory in various sections of tho Union
influenced by reasons best known to them-
selves have endeavored to stir up internal
strife and to array brother against brother.
In this conflict of opinion and for the
promotion of the most unworthy purposes
Kansas is left to suffer her people to mourn
and her prosperity is endangered.
He conjures the men of all parties and
from every quarter to suspend the fratri-
cidal strife and regarding each other as the
children of a common mother to come and
reason together banishing all outside influ-
ences from their deliberations and to assem-
ble around the council board with the con-
stitution of our countr and the organic law
of the Territory as the great charts for their
guidance and direction. He believes that
the inhabitants of the Territory better un-
derstand what domestic institutions arc
suited to their condition what laws will be
most conducive to their prosperity and hap
piness man mc citizens ot distant or even
neighboring States and that he will uphold
this privilege with all the power committed
In relation to any changes of the laws of
the Territory which I may deem desirable
I have no occasion now to speak - but these
are subjects to which I will direct public
attention at the proper time.
The territory of the United States is the
common property of the several States or of
the people thereof. This being so no ob-
stacle should be interposed to thefreesettle-
meut of this common property while in a
I cheerfully admit that the people of this
Territory under the organic act have the
absolute riht of makinrr their municinal
laws and from citizens who deem them-
selves aggrieved by recent legislation. I
would invoke the utmost forbearance and
point out to them a sure and peaceable
remedy. You have the right to ask the
next Legislature to revise any and all laws;
and in the meantime asyou value the peace
of the Territory and the maintenance of
future laws I would earnestly ask you to
refrain from all violations of tho present
I am sure there is patriotism sufficient in
tho people of Kansas tolenda willinjr obedi
ence to law. All the provisions of the con
stitution of the United States must be sa-
credly observed all the acts of Congress
having reference to this Territory must be
unhesitatingly obeyed and the decisions of
our courts respected. It will be my impera-
tive duty to see that these suggestions are
carried into effect. In my official action
here I will do justice at all hazards. Influ-
enced by no other considerations than the
welfare of the whole people of this Territory
I desire to know no part- no section no
North no South no East no West; noth-
ing but Kansas and my country.
Fully conscious of my great responsibili-
ties in the present condition of things in
Kansas I must invoke your aid and solicit
your generous forbearance. Your execu
tive officer can do little without the aid of
the people. With a firm reliance upon Di-
vine Providence to the best of my ability
I shall promote the interests of the citizens
of the Territory not merely collectively
but individually; and I shall expect from
them in return that cordial aid and support
without which the government of no State
or Territory can be administered with bene-

Water on the Mukctl Plalnis The Teco.
We published sometime ago a commu-
nication ffolu a scientific gcntloman of lM$
city strongly affirming the belief that
water might be found on the Llano Esta-
cado. The last San Antonio Texan gives
us interesting particulars of Capt. Pope's
experiments in tho employ of the United
States. He bored 861 feet and the water
was within 1 10 feet of the surface. By go-
ing about 1000 feet he thinks that anabun-
dance of water can be found to overflow
tho surface at any point of these plains.
The Texan speaks of the valley of the

rrd. Tate In Haalrtrp-A CaoO-Speech.
Bastrop Oct. 12lh '56.
EditorsOozettc On Thursday nighty last
by invitation of the Democratic Club J? retl.
Tate Esq. of Lagrange addressed the citi-
zens of our town upon the political questions
now agitating tho country. In hut opening
remarks Mr. Tate urged the importance ot
scrutinizing tho views of tho candidates ot
the two great parties upon the slavery
question which ho regarded as the mam
issue in tho canvass. He next took up the
question of Squatter Sovereignty and de-
fended Mr. Buchanau against the charge
in a most masterly and able manner.
I have heard this question discussed from
time to time during the canvass and I
must say Mr. Tate's exposition of the sub-
ject was the most clear aud satusfactory one
to which I have over listened. He referred
to aud read from tho Sanford letter in
which the language employed by Mr. Bu-
chanan is almost identical with that of his
letter of acceptance and called upon the
people to take Mr. Buchanan's own declar-
ations on this point in preference to the
false construction given by his political op-
ponents. The speaker next referred to the political
records of Fillmoro aud Buchauan and
nnminnnfi'fl forciblv upon Mr. Fillmore's
anti-slavery tendencies. He said that
while he was willing to adroit that Buchan-
an like most of the Northern men was in
feeling and sentiment opposed to slavery
he challenged his opponent to show one
single instance during his long public ca-
reer in which ho refused to give his sanc-
tion to every measure for the protection of
the constitutional rights of the States.
He dwelt at some length upon the sec-
tional feeling now arrayed against us at the
North and declared that while he was a
constitutional union loving man he never
could as a States rights man consent to
bow in submission to the yoke of the Black
I cannot give you a report of the speech
in full but will say that taking it all to-
gether it was a clear logical and satisfac-
tory exposition and defence of the prim"
pics of the Democratic party. Mr. T'
as he sa;d in his concluding remarks d? '
not attempt to tickle the fancy of tho Milt
tude by telling amusing anecdotes but al
dressed himself to their good sense -v '
The Bastrop Advertiser in its las '
contains a small paragraph which w-
dently designed to detract from M n
but like everything else cominjr frrw
filthy quarter it falls still-born. It i. f
that the speech of Mr. Tate was a mociut;
one and it is true when he bogan to pour

that they were taken with a leaving and
nine-tenths of those who left were members
of that party but a respectable and in-
telligent audience gave the speaker their
attention during his entire remarks.
